Google is developing a car that will make human drivers a thing of the past.

Advances in nanoscience are promising to revolutionise the pharmaceutical industry.

Over the next few decades, the continued development of dual-use technologies will provide major benefits to society. They will also pose significant and unprecedented global risks, including risks of new weapons of mass destruction, arms races, or the accidental deaths of billions of people.

A growing number of experts are demanding more research into the potentially significant risk that modern technology will pose to the human race (existential risk).

Future of Sentience Cambridge (FuSe) and Cambridge University Physics Society are delighted to host a panel including the cosmologist,ex-master of Trinity College, and co-founder of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, Lord Martin Rees, to discuss existential risk and why he, and many others, believe that we are not taking it seriously enough.

This event is especially useful as an introduction to this fascinating topic.
